Our Physical Education program incorporates both daily physical activities and specialist PE lessons. All classes participate in activities on a regular basis. Specialist PE lessons focus on fundamental movement skills, dance, movement exploration, active living, sports games, physical skills and gymnastics. Our extensive grounds and our fully air-conditioned and equipped gymnasium ensure that our program can be run all year round. We have a covered outdoor sports complex (COLA) (40m x 25m) which also caters for many sports and activities.
At times, students at Pimpala are able to participate in federally-funded after school activities when available.
Involvement in SAPSASA sporting activities is promoted and encouraged for Years 6 & 7 students. SAPSASA sports include boys and girls’ netball, boys and girls soccer, football, boys and girls rugby, swimming, cross country and athletics.
Pimpala students participate in the ‘Premier’s Be Active’ challenge each year.
Annual swimming lessons for Reception - Year 5 students are held each year. An Aquatics Program for Years 6 & 7 students is also scheduled each year.
Out of School Hours Sport
Generally, a range of out of school hours competitive sporting options are offered to all students. These may include soccer, basketball, and netball. In some sports there are minimum age requirements for competitive teams. These opportunities depend on the interest of students and the availability of parents / volunteers as coaches and team managers.
A code of conduct applies to all players and parents.
